We wanted to let you know that we’ve updated our program payouts for referrals. The reason for the change is two-fold. First, our community priorities are shifting as our membership has grown (we’re now at nearly 200,000 registered members!). Second, we’re addressing some of the cases of abuse we’re seeing as they relate to the referral program.
The changes involve the up-front bonuses earned by both referrers and referrals when new members join using a referral code or link. We’re not making any changes to the ongoing percentage you earn from your referrals’ activity. In the new setup, for regular users, you will earn 50 points up-front for each new member you refer (same as before) and 500 points goes to the referral (vs. 2,000 previously). For influeners, you will earn 500 points up-front for each new member you refer, and the referral will earn 1,000 up-front points (vs. 5,000 previously). You will continue to earn the same ongoing percentage of points you’ve always earned for points earned by your referrals.
